I don’t do this often, but I’m doing it today: sending you to a different site to read the story, because it’s a Storify and it won’t embed here. But it’s an important story and you will be very, very glad you read it. A fifteen-year-old girl was on the brink of suicide when her real life enemies jumped on Twitter to encourage her to do it. That’s when Anonymous and Rustle League stepped in. I’ve never been prouder of them.
I’ve got kids at school and reading something like this just horrifies me. It happens all too often, the vultures descending when they sense a person feeling vulnerable. They make me sick.
I love Anonymous for riding in to the rescue like a fifth horseman of the apocalypse. ‘Anon, for those things War, Famine, Pestilence and Death can’t cover.’ ;)
“and Rustle League” they get annoyed if you leave them out. Yeah, I was never prouder of my boys.

Sorry, and Rustle League. All involved have earned my eternal admiration :)

Wow! Thanks for sharing this story. I enjoyed the half hour of reading it.
I’m glad you toughed it out and made it all the way through. I have a new, simlar, story up now, with a happy ending.
